All children within our school follow the ‘Oxford Reading Tree Scheme’. This is a levelled reading scheme that provides high quality texts covering a range of genres. To ensure a breadth of choice and interest we support this scheme with a variety of other schemes depending upon the child’s needs. Our aim is to inspire a love of reading in all children and as the children progress through the school we offer a wide range of current ‘free reading books’. This is supported by guided reading sessions, shared reading opportunities and whole class text.
All children in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and for some children in Key Stage 2 follow the Letters and Sounds phonics programme, once they are secure they progress to the school’s spelling scheme, ensuring that all phonics and spelling teaching is matched to the needs of the child.
